If a book, article, film/video, or other item is not in the Decker Library, we can usually arrange to borrow a copy from elsewhere. The Interlibrary loan service is done online, with most materials available in 1-2 weeks. Occasionally, the lending library charges for the service. In this case, you will be notified of the charges before the book is ordered.
Interlibrary Loan requests can be made as follows:
- On-line through the Library Catalog (click on "I need material") - preferred method
- By email to the Interlibrary Loan staff at email@example.com
All patrons will be notified via mica.edu email to pick up their materials at the Circulation Desk once received, and all are required to return items to a staff person at the Circulation Desk rather than at the Reference Desk or the book drop.
